How do I know when my assignment has been submitted in a course using Assignment Enhancements?

If Assignment Enhancements is enabled in your course, you can view an assignment to verify your assignment submission.

All file submissions also appear in your personal unfiled folder.


  • If the assignment you are accessing displays differently, Assignment Enhancements may not be enabled in your course or your instructor may not have used a supported assignment type. Please view this guide for more information.
  • The Assignment Enhancements - Student feature preview does not support the following assignment types: Student Annotation, Group Assignments, Peer Reviews, and Cloud Assignments.

View Assignment Status

The Progress Tracker displays the assignment submission status. A successfully submitted assignment displays a Submitted status [1].

Additionally, you can view your most recent submission [2].

If you choose, you may resubmit another version of your assignment using the Try Again button [3].

If you've submitted multiple assignment submissions, you can view previous submissions by clicking the Attempt drop-down [4].

To view feedback or add an assignment comment for your instructor, click the View Feedback button [5].


  • If you're not able to resubmit work, your instructor may have limited the number of allowed submissions or the assignment may no longer be accepting submissions due to the assignment's availability dates.
  • Once you've submitted your work, the assignment will still display in the Assignments page and the Syllabus.
